Manage server concept

Hi friends
i am new to weblogic and trying to understand a few things ...

What i am able to do as of now is to create 1 admin and 2 manage servers.

1) I have deployed by application (.EAR file) on to both the manage servers and not on the admin server.

How does the admin server (where the application is "not deployed") will pass the request further to the manage servers ?

Can you please guide me a bit.

thanks


Raghav.

Admin Server Manages the resources of the managed servers. It is the single point of administration for all the managed servers. It will not route the request to the managed servers.

So where should the request go ? to the admin server or to the manage servers.

I tried sending a request to the admin server (to which 2 of my manage servers are connected) but it displyed a 404.

P.S The application is deployed on the manage servers and not in the admin server. So how does admin server pass the request forward to the manage servers

???

Make sure, you have configured the Proxy-Plugins properly.

hmmm ....

Okay i am kind of clear on the concept of the admin server and manage server...

What i want to understand now is that i have added my manage servers in a cluster .

Now tell me where should the request go ... to the one of the manage servers which is there in the cluster or to the cluster directly . If to the cluster directly then i would like to know how ?

PS : my application is deployed on the cluster which effectively means that it is deployed on both the manage servers.

The request will go to whichever managed server the URL is pointed to. If you have a cluster of nodes and want the request to get dispersed to different nodes, then you will need to use load distributing software.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
